Source: Martial. Rogues' talents depend on extensive training and constant practice, innate skill, and natural coordination.
Role: Striker. Rogues dart in to attack, do massive damage, and then retreat to safety. They do best when teamed with a defender to flank enemies.
That rogues have a dubious reputation is no secret. They are a varied breed, after all, and include all manner of unsavory types. They are the cutpurses and footpads prowling the city’s seediest districts. They are infamous pirates whose daring is the stuff of legends. They are the bandits in the wilderness who prey on travelers. They are the tomb robbers, the archeologists, the fallen nobles, the dashing knaves, the bold heroes who fight injustice whatever way they can. They are all these things and more. And for every rogue who embraces crime, there’s another who uses his or her talents for good ends.
Rogues are unconventional warriors. Where a fighter goes toe-to-toe with the enemy, a rogue uses subtle tactics. Rogues are adept at finding openings, knowing just where and when to strike to deliver the most damage. They can spot these advantages or create them use stealth, skill, and shrewd tactics. Given their methods of operation and their occupations, rogues elicit a variety of reactions from those around them. To some common folk, they are quintessential heroes, following their own credo and flaunting the rule of law to achieve great deeds. Others are not so charitable, having been crossed by a rogue once or twice before, and see them as nothing more than glorified criminals. How the world will regard them, however, depends on what they do and why they do it. A rogue could become a hero to the people, or a terrible force whose name is never spoken above a whisper.
